Rosacea with Extremely Reactive Skin

by Gea

Hi. I am 52 and have moderate rosacea w/ broken capillaries on my cheeks. This began almost immediately (within 1 week) of starting Murad skin care line which contained salicylic acid. My skin was perfect before I began Murad and I wish I'd never ruined my skin with it. Also, I have combo skin & break out on my chin and forehead. I've tried dozens of skin care lines and they all irritate my skin except for Andrea Rose (it's salicylate free). I cannot use any AHA's because of the intense irritation. I'm curious now about the ***z-cleaure.shtml*** line after checking that web site, since it is also salicylate free. I was hoping it might be safe for rosacea (and help it), as well as wondering if it might give my skin the extra moisture I need without breaking me out. I would love your input on this.

Also, 10 weeks ago I started doing the ***z-cff.shtml*** program. I'm excited to see what results I will have in the next couple of months. Carolyn is a doll and I love her exercise program. I did try 3 of her skin care products for sensitive skin, but sadly, they were irritating/burning me and I had to return them. After reading your web site, it made me wonder if it was because I'm sensitive to the plant ingredients. Especially since Andrea Rose's line (salicyic free) has been the only line in 15 yrs. that I've been able to tolerate.

Thank you in advance for answering my questions and I
hope you heal quickly. Sending you blessings of Jesus. :)

Hi Gea, thanks so much for your message and for your warm wishes and blessings. I am very appreciative! :)

Yes, in answer to your question, the ***z-cleure.shtml*** products are excellent for rosacea and many of my visitors say it is the only product line they've been able to use that will work without breaking out their skin.

The benefit of their product line is that they do not use parabens and other ingredients that can be more irritating. Most other salicylate free lines use ingredients that can be more irritating for sensitive skin, or that can have other health effects, even if they are free of salicylates.

For example, I looked at one salicylate free products site that offers products containing Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lanolin, BHT, Imidazolidinyl Urea, artifical coloring and dyes, parabens, etc. This may work for some people but those with really sensitive skin would benefit from products that don't use these kinds of irritants. As far as I can tell, ***z-cleure.shtml*** is the only salicylate free line that makes an effort to reduce or eliminate the most toxic and irritating skin care ingredients.

Yes, many people with sensitive skin find that plant ingredients, even safe and natural ones, can break out their skin. I've written more about salicylates in skincare products.

I hope this information is helpful for you, and that you've been able to find gentle and effective solutions for your rosacea and broken capillaries. Blessings to you as well! :)
